Beachy Beach and Cerulean Interiors are inviting you to celebrate their openings and enjoy local art on Saturday, November 12th from 10am-4pm.
These two businesses have actually been open for the past two years, but never held a Grand Opening and ribbon cutting- so it’s time now! They decided against just holding an open house, in favor of holding an event to help local artists, contribute to Beach Care, and introduce the businesses to the community. Karen Smith, owner of Beachy Beach, says, “I have been so fortunate that so many in the community have supported and encouraged us so it is our turn to give some more back.”
Artists that will be present at “Celebrate the Arts” will be selling jewelry, painted art, pen and pencil art, textile art, and more. Proceeds will benefit the local artists as well as Beach Care Services.
These artists include:
- Eve Alligood
- Gracie Alligood
- Constance Snellgrove
- Tana Plyler
- Sharon Kator
- Tom Jordan
- Judy Kish
- Global Effect
Enjoy getting to know Beachy Beach and Cerulean Interiors while giving back to local artists and Beach Care Services!

There are four movements in this piece, and was debuted at Carnegie Hall. Dvorak was a Czech composer of late romantic music; sometimes his style is referred to as romantic-classical fusion. The No.9 Symphony is one of his best known works.

The crowd was standing or sitting in their chairs and blankets, cuddled up into each other’s arms Friday night at Pier Park. All waiting and trying to see the stage where Clint Black would perform. The lights went down and at the sound of a guitar the audience jumped up with enthusiastic screams. Clint Black, with his signature black cowboy hat, brought some heat into the cold night air.
